Tony Romo is an NFL player who currently plays for the Dallas Cowboys. He is a four-time Pro Bowler and the Cowboys' all-time leader in career touchdown passes and passing yards.
Romo went undrafted in the 2003 NFL draft after playing college football at Eastern Illinois.
He worked his way up the depth chart and replaced an ineffective Drew Bledsoe during the second half of a 2006 game. Since then, he has been the Cowboys’ starter.
In 2008, Romo led the Cowboys to a 13-3 record, but they were bounced out in the divisional playoff by the New York Giants, who went on to beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl.
Before the 2013 season, Romo signed a six-year contract extension worth $108 million, including $55 million in guarantees.
After missing the playoffs in each of the previous five seasons, Romo had perhaps his best season in 2014 as the Cowboys won the NFC East and won a playoff game. Romo led the league in passer rating, yards per attempts and completions. He finished the regular season with 3,705 passing yards, 34 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
